Default BIB calculator problem...

GM and zilla site should be commended for such a valuable information for the diy folks here: http://www.zillaspeak.com/bib-howtobuild.asp

I downloaded the calculator both new and old, and I come up with a markedly different SM values as illustrated. I assume the old version is giving the right information.

I am unsure of the value units etc. (can't seem to send private email to GM).

I tried to insert the values for Pioneer 4.5 speaker here: http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=290-010

any help will be appreciate.

gychang,

That threw me for a loop at first to. The new calculator uses cubic feet instead of liters. There's a conversion table there on the new spreadsheet to convert the two.

gychang,
The liters vs. cuft is exactly why. I have updated the sheet again and passed it on for the Zilla site. This sheet has most of the popular drivers already built into it.

The updated spreadsheet looks great. I will upload it to the site later today. Sorry to make you wait but it looks like it will be worth it. I need a few hours before updating the site... i have been trying to get back to work and playing catchup is not fun.

Peace,
Godzilla

Here is the latest BIB Calculator!

http://www.zillaaudio.com/diy-speaker-building.htm

It's the second item down on the left. I am in the process of rebuilding my website so please forgive me for the broken links and work in progress.

If anyone has any questions do not hesitate to ask.
